Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: There are many types of people in the world. Unfortunately V'tan would appear to be one of those that people wouldn't want to meet in a dark lonely corridor somewhere. Though that's not necessarily true, it's the appearance that counts and V'tan is easily around six feet tall. Actually he's a little over that height, but he most certainly is not an inch over. He's even proportioned so that his height is the most prominent thing about him. But yes he does have a fair amount of muscle, all of it well-toned into lean, smooth bulges from his turns of being a dragonrider. No ridiculously over-pronounced bulging angles for him.
Personality: Pride is something V'tan has in abundance, and he'll be the first to admit that it's an easily hurt pride at that. It makes it hard for him to admit when he's wrong, he doesn't actually have the strength to plain admit to a mistake. There is always an excuse with him, a reason that he acted the way he did. Weakness is something V'tan just doesn't want to show that he has and whether the excuse he gives is true or not, V'tan has become adept at deluding himself into believing whatever he tells himself. He just likes having things go his way, and if there is no chance of that happening...well V'tan can pick his battles better than some. He's just better at sulking around and being a sore loser. He's gruff with those that rub his wounds...or offer him pity. Neither of which are things he wants.

Information about V'tan's pets
Pet Name: Mietan
Pet Type: Green Firelizard
Appearance: Any green being Mietan-sized small would have trouble standing out. Her dark hunter green blends against many different backgrounds too, especially the night sky. Those gemstone-like colors upon her feet could almost be mistaken for stars. Size alone negates her stamina, her shorter wingspan lessens speed and that leaves the stately figure reliant upon agility.
Personality: Mietan bundles eagerness into one task, then coasts afterward until tomorrow. No coax or bribe gets her active beyond rearranging herself on the V'tan express. She goes where he goes without caring whether those places might perk her interest. They may exist but she handles whatever happens through calm confidence, like each situation can't be so bad.
Information about V'tan's dragon
Dragon Name: Kypaith
Age: 10 turns
Wing (Weyrling Group): Miscellaneous Riders
Appearance: Kypaith is certainly a large blue with his length and wingspan being just a little below the largest known sizes for blue dragons. Not that he looks very strong at that size class, his thick dark cloudy navy blue hide is stretched to tightly over him for anything to show but slender bulges of powerful muscles. Such has put the blue more on the lean side with an aerodynamic shape which he has allowed him to cut through the air with ease. His main coloration is that navy however that blue trails off down his legs and tail. The smear of color fading out to a more vibrant sapphire on Kypaith's lower legs and on the tip of his twitching tail.
Personality: Any hyperness that the blue may have is very well controlled. Kypaith tends to show more of an eagerness than an energetic rush. Whatever he does always has a reason behind. Normally it's a green but Kypaith has been known to tease other male dragons like that though his foremost interest is in females. Either way the blue likes to show off what he can do, there isn't much that he doubts that he can do. His pride is thicker than even V'tan's and it can't be taken down. He has an extreme confidence in his abilities and those of his rider's...even as he does know his current place in the scheme of things. But he still believes they can do impossible things...maybe even be the first blue to catch a gold... Of course Kypaith has delusions of granduer that helps him along but he has figured out that he is allowed to dream. It's just that some of the goals...or how about all of them...are impossible. There are few grounds in reality that Kypaith does have.
Weyr of Origin: Ista
Abilites and weaknesses: Kypaith is a very attentive dragon, though his goals are totally impossible. Though that's cute in it's own way. Kypaith though his a strong blue, his stamina is at the top of his class. His agility isn't too bad either.
